From  our Correspondent

KOKRAJHAR, Jan. 7: Renowned Bodo writer and cultural activist Arun Kr.

The award which is given by the Bharatiya Dalit Sahitya Akademi was conferred to Borgoyary through the 28th National Conference of Dalit Writers, Delhi on 10 December by the National President of the Bharatiya Dalit Sahitya Akademi- Dr. SP Sumanakshar.

Earlier, he had received Pride of Sports Excellence Award (Football, Volleyball, Kabaddi) from the government of Assam in 2007. He has also won other literary awards from different sahitya sabhas.

In an interaction with the media persons at Kokrajhar Press Club on Monday, Borgoyary said he did not expect such award but this award has inspired him to continue his writings. He said he has been keeping silence over the years and did not want to come to limelight of getting awards that he has received so far, but certain quarters requested him to express himself so that the young generations could get encouragement.

Borgoyary is associated with various social and cultural organizations. He is presently the President of Kokrajhar district Axom Xahitya Xabha (AXX) and advisor of Kokrajhar district Boro Samaj. Besides, he was also associated with Bodo Radio and Television Artistes’ Association and was the Curator of Kokrajhar Museum.

He retired as the Principal of Dhubri Govt. HS School in 2004. He was also the Officer on Special Duty (OSD) at Srimanta Sankardev Kalakshetra for four years.

Born in 1937 at Nakargaon, a remote village of Kokrajhar district, Borogoyary has published as many as 18 books written by him of which three books-“Suju Bijabs” are approved by the government for the syllabii of class v, vi and vii.
